"Whole against the sky"

“Once the realization is accepted
that even between the closest human beings
infinite distances continue to exist,
a wonderful living side by side can grow up,
if they succeed in loving the distance between them
which makes it possible for each to see the other
whole against the sky.”

Rainer Maria Rilke
